Heiland Universal Manual Splitgrade Analyzer Computer SPL-M1


Special order (2 week lead time)

For all enlargers with manual filter selection, this unique system facilitates and accelerates the making of high-quality black-and-white photographs on multigrade paper, and can be used with any and all enlarger systems. Filter selection and exposure time must be handled manually on the enlarger (and timer if one is used), no modification to the enlarger is needed.

The system is calibrated once with two test images and can be used with insertion filters as well as multigrade and color heads.

By measuring areas of light and shadow of the projected negative, the user determines contrast and brightness on the easel.

For over 30 default paper calibrations, a first suggestion for the right exposure will immediately be calculated with 1/10 f-stop / gradation level accuracy.

Furthermore, there is no limit to any possible manual corrections, post-exposure. Image results are developed much faster and creative working is encouraged instead of limited.

Key benefits:
 Your image is typically created in under 2 minutes
 No modification of enlarger is necessary
 Quick and easy determination of exposure time and gradation
 Only two test prints are needed for system calibration
 Intuitive control due to illuminated buttons and plain-text display
 Manual overwrites allow creative working

 Free firmware updates for new paper programs and functions
 Use the unit with any enlarger
